Roosevelt Tour Series
The Roosevelt photographer who took this picture of a rhinoceros sunning himself on his native velt, had a narrow escape. The animal charged him and he had to flee, leaving his camera. This rhinoceros is the most dangerous animal in the African wilds, as he has a very uncertain temper and will often charge a man without the slightest warning. He is, however, very stupid and almost blind and cannot see anything distinctly at a distance of ten yards. The recourse of the hunter is to remain still and the chances are very good that the rhinoceros will miss him in his charge. They have been known to have horns as long as 47 inches
